July 6, 1941
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Social Justice, Father Coughlin’s weekly magazine, announces withdrawal of support from the America First Committee, complaining that Gen. Robert E. Wood, a leader of the committee, barred hawkers of Social Justice from an America First meeting. The paper declares: “The Christian Front is looking around for leadership in high places–leaders around whom the common people can assemble.”
